Beauty and the Beast Remix (Twilight)

Hey guys! I'm new to the group and this is my first post. I'm so excited to be here, it should be really fun!

Now down to business! Twilight, and all the vamp/young pretty girl story lines are really Beauty and the Beast with a twist. We love to see a virginal young lady with a dangerous love interest. We've loved it for a good long while, but now the beasts happen to be beautiful. Villains used to wear black hats. Evolution is a wonderful thing. I'd much rather see Robert Pattinson than some grotesque animal/ Ron Jeremy type monster...
All of that said my piece is based on an illustration by Thomas Blackshear called "Beauty and the Beast":
I used that as the blueprint to create this:
I used imagery from the covers of all four books, as well as inserting the phases of the moon behind their faces because I needed an extra element and that fit the story in so many ways. Then of course the butterflies became forks for my own amusement. This is just the sketch, I am working on the painted/ full color version. I just wanted to post this with the Twilight stuff. I'll update it shortly with the finished version.
Until then here's a close up of the faces:
Thanks for looking!! Cheers!
